She fills half-full ketchup bottles
from half-empty so customers believe
they have new natural tomatoes

Pretty show is pretty. The cinematography in this show really is lush and amazing. I’ve increasingly found it melancholy to watch however; it’s the story of a woman trapped in an incredibly lonely, vulnerable position, bereft of protection, friendship, or respect, and two centuries away from the man she loves. The life women lived then was one without rights or protection, and as realistic as the show is, it doesn’t make for a light-hearted watch with the unending grimness of Claire’s situation.
